When a patient requires teeth removal, one of the best options following the removal is having dental implants. Dental implants provide a solid foundation for an oral surgeon to give a patient a replacement tooth which feel, look, and function like natural teeth.
What Are Dental Implants?
A natural tooth consists of a root and a crown. If you compare natural teeth to implant-supported replacement teeth, you’ll see they have the same basic parts. Both have a crown (the visible part used to chew food). Both have a root that holds the tooth securely under the gum and is anchored into the jaw. The difference is that the implant is made of titanium – the same time-tested material used by surgeons for artificial joints. When you lose a tooth, you lose both the root and the crown.
Dental implants are small metal posts which are inserted into the jawbone, where teeth have been removed. These posts are generally made of titanium or zirconium, which bonds with the bone, creating the root foundation for the artificial teeth. Dental implants are also a very popular option because they prevent jawbone deterioration, which occurs when teeth are missing, keeping the facial structure intact.
To determine if the right option for you is Jessen Oral Surgery of Ogden’s dental implants, you will need to complete a dental exam and full health history with an Dr. Jessen. At these appointments, your oral surgeon would be happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have, to ensure that you have a successful and worry-free procedure.
During your consultations, we would also be happy to go over your insurance coverage and fees for your procedure. While coverage for dental implants varies from policy to policy, we will work with you closely to make sure you get all the benefits you are entitled.
Dental implant placement is a team effort between an oral and maxillofacial surgeon and a restorative dentist. Dr. Jessen performs the actual implant surgery, initial tooth extractions, and bone grafting if necessary. The restorative dentist (your dentist) fits and makes the permanent crown or prosthesis. Your dentist will also make any temporary prosthesis needed during the implant healing process.
To replace the missing tooth, Dr. Jessen first replaces the missing root with a dental implant. Time is required, usually 6-8 weeks for bone to heal and grow around the dental implant. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. A support post (abutment) is then placed on the implant and a new replacement tooth (crown) is placed on top of the abutment. In many cases a temporary replacement tooth can be attached to the implant immediately after it is placed. If all of your teeth are missing, a variety of treatment options are available to support the replacement teeth such as the All on 4, Trefoil and Removable Denture.

This is the second implant that Dr. Jessen has placed for me. I have referred my family and friend to him. I have never experienced pain or discomfort. It has been all so easy. Thank you, Dr. Jessen.
Dr. Jessen placed 3 implants for me. What a difference that has made in what I can eat and the way I talk. I used to be so self-conscious of my missing teeth when I spoke to people. I never smiled, and I always covered my mouth when I laughed, due to embarrassment of my missing teeth. Thank you, Dr. Jessen, for giving me my smile back.
I was so impressed on the skill and accuracy of Dr. Jessen when he placed my 3 dental implants and my wife’s 2 dental implants. From start to finish his staff knew us, knew the procedure, explained everything and helped us with insurance and understanding what would come next. I have referred several family and friends for his care.
My son had his wisdom teeth removed there yesterday. Dr. Jessen and staff were awesome! They did a really good job of making him feel calm and kept me aware of everything. I would definitely recommend anyone who needs oral surgery to go to Dr. jessen. They’re great!
